REV. CHARLES WOLFE
Irish poet
(1791 - 1823)

No useless coffin enclosed his breast,
  Not in sheet nor in shroud we wound him;
    But he lay like a warrior taking his rest
      With his martial cloak around him.
      - [Military]

Go, forget me--why should sorrow
  O'er that brow a shadow fling?
    Go, forget me--and to-morrow
      Brightly smile and sweetly sing.
        Smile--though I shall not be near thee;
          Sing--though I shall never hear thee.
      - Song--Go, Forget Me! [Forgetfulness]

If I had thought thou couldst have died
  I might not weep for thee;
    But I forgot, when by thy side,
      That thou couldst mortal be;
        It never through my mind had passed,
          That time would e'er be o'er
            When I on thee should look my last,
              And thou shouldst smile no more!
      - Song--The Death of Mary [Death]

But he lay like a warrior taking his rest,
  With his martial cloak around him.
      - The Burial of Sir John Moore [Death]

Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note,
  As his corse to the rampart we hurried.
      - The Burial of Sir John Moore at Carunna
         (st. 3) [Soldiers]
